Thanks to Pinterest I have found a new, fun, dangerous science experiment that kids of all ages can do!
I found out about Snake Bubbles here and decided to try them ourselves!
The only things you will need are:
-an empty bottle for each person
-towel/washcloth you can cut up
-a responsible adult
Cut the ends off of the bottles and cut a piece of the towel large enough to cover the bottom and enough overlap to go up the side a bit. Put the towel on the bottom of the bottle and secure with a rubber band.
Mix dish soap and water together in a flat container. We used a 2 soap to 1 water ratio as suggested by the previous blogger and it worked pretty well.
Dip the end of your bottle in the solution and blow. The bubbles will ooze out the end.So.Cool. It was a bit breezy here so they went flying through the yard and the kids had the best time chasing them all over!
CAUTION: THIS SOLUTION MAKES THE CONCRETE VERY SLICK AND CHILDREN GET EXCITED AND SLIDE AND FALL DOWN. WHEN THEY FALL DOWN THEY MIGHT KNOCK BUBBLE SOLUTION IN THEIR FACE AND GET IT IN THEIR EYE. THIS MIGHT LEAD TO THE PARENTS YELLING AT EACH OTHER IN THE FRONT YARD DECIDING HOW TO GET SOAP OUT OF A 5 YEAR OLD EYE. SAID 5 YEAR OLD MIGHT SCREAM AND YELL UNTIL THROWN IN THE SHOWER (WITH ALL CLOTHES ON) TO HELP FLUSH THE SOAP FROM THE EYE. THIS IS YOUR WARNING.
Do it anyways....it is super-duper fun!!!!!!
